Central State University Creates a Summer Banking Institute

Central State University, the historically Black education institution in Wilberforce, Ohio, has entered into a partnership with the Union Savings Bank to offer a summer training program to prepare students for careers in the banking industry.

The Summer Banking Institute will include four weeks of classroom instruction on the Central State campus on topics such as mortgage processing, retail banking, customer service, data management, monetary policy, and bank operations. The classroom experience will be followed by training during a paid internship at a Union Savings Bank branch. Ten students will participate in the Summer Banking Institute.

Union Savings Bank developed the program in an effort to diversify the pipeline for bank employment opportunities. Louis Beck, chair of Union Savings Bank, stated that “we are excited about collaborating with Central State University in building future diversity and inclusive talent in the banking industry. We look forward to building a robust talent pool through internships and deepening the understanding, familiarity, and trust in the banking industry.”
